Zortrax releases M300 Plus

The Polish company Zortrax has announced a new addition to its M series of FDM 3D printers, with a new M300 Plus model, which adds more connectivity to the existing M300.

This Zortrax M300 Plus offers additional connectivity to the standard platform with its 300 x 300 x 300mm build size.

This follows the launch of the M200 Plus earlier this year. Essentially, the Plus models build on the basic versions with more connectivity and remote control and some tweaks to the printing system designed to appeal to a more corporate market for applications such as prototyping.

Thus the M300 Plus has the same build size as the M300 at 300 x 300 x 300mm with a single extruder. However it gains both WiFi and Ethernet connectivity with remote management so that it can be used as part of a 3D printer farm. It uses an Android operating system.

There’s a built-in camera and a four-inch LCD touch screen. The extruder has been upgraded to work with a wider range of flexible materials, with a redesigned nozzle with new geometry. The cooling system has also been upgraded with two fans cooling the print and a radial fan to cool the extruder block.

The M300 itself was launched back in June 2016 at the Additive Manufacturing show in Amsterdam. For the sake of full disclosure I should point out that at the time I was editing Disruptive Magazine, which was owned by the team behind this event.
